On June 16, 2011, Consumer Law Group commenced a class action against De Beers and other related entities alleging that they engaged in an international conspiracy to fix the price of Gem Grade Diamonds starting as far back as January 1, 1994, and that, as a result, class members paid more for their Gem Grade Diamonds than they would have but for the illegal conduct.

On October 16, 2016, the parties reached a proposed Canada-wide settlement in the global amount of $9.4 million. A copy of the Canadian Diamonds Class Action National Settlement Agreement is available here:

CONSUMER LAW GROUP has launched a Canada-wide class action lawsuit against De Beers on behalf of individuals who have purchased a diamond or purchased any products which contain a diamond since January 1st 1994.

The class action is based on De Beers longstanding monopolistic power in the diamond industry and their use of this power to artificially restrain trade and increase the price of diamonds by controlling inventory, limiting supply, restricting purchase, and falsely advertising the scarceness of diamonds.

Due to this conduct consumers have paid higher prices for diamonds and products containing diamonds than they would have paid in a competitive market.
